The Legendary Trucker Ed Spills Secrets From the Early Days of Hair Radio
"Is my great honor to bring back to the broadcast one of the original players in the HairRadio .com story, Trucker Ed. Good morning, Trucker Ed. Good morning, my buddy. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Well, I'm doing great. One of the reasons why I invited you on this morning is I want the fans of the Hair Radio Morning Show to get to know all of us, the hosts, the program folks. And I think that the best way to do that was to just talk to the folks who know us best, folks in our everyday lives, when we turn the mic off 9 at o 'clock Eastern and we go about the other parts of our life. And you are one of those members of my extended family. Sure. So I have to go back a little bit. And we call you Trucker Ed, because you've been on the show and our fans know you as Trucker Ed. Well, Ed and I go back decades. Ed, I don't even know where to begin with the Hair Radio story, but you've been there since the beginning. The beginning. Yes, I remember that. What can you share with folks about the early days? Feel free. Go ahead. Don't get so many trade secrets away. No, that's too many. Take it away. Oh, man. Yeah, I remember us back in the day, like we was in Newark and we had our, you know, that's where it all began, down there in Newark. That's right. And the Ironbound section of Newark. Yes. Uh -huh. Yeah. That's right. It really was. It was so much fun back then. And it was a third floor walk -up, if I recall. It was like, I think it was the third floor, second or third floor. It was way up, many steps. And I remember we were doing, we didn't start with the Hair Radio show, we were doing center stage. And we would have on the celebrities like Little Susie and Local. She had a big hit record though, back in the day. Yes, she did. Oh yeah. She was popular back then. Exactly. She was popular. And we, uh, CeCe Tennyson came and brought her manager. Oh, I remember that. Yes, that was the early, early days. Yeah. I was able to shake her hand and everything. Oh my. Yeah. Oh yeah. You remember that? You were, were you at the office when she came? You're kidding. Yeah, I was there. Yeah, I was there when she came. Wow. I can't forget that. Wow. She was so, she was beautiful, still is. Yes. And her manager, quite a nice fellow. And we all were, we, Ed, I don't know if you remember this, but they used to, we, we had our office on the third floor. Next to us were these guys who did the weather. That's all they did. Oh, I remember that. The radio. Remember the, so they gave me the microphone to use for CeCe Tennyson's interview, her very first interview. Not the one that you guys hear now on the Hair Radio Morning Show, but the very, very first time she ever did our show. And we were all huddled around one mic, literally all huddled around one microphone. I'll never forget it. That was the beginning of Hair Radio, man. That was the beginning of Hair Radio, and she arrived in a big limo. Do you remember she arrived in a big limo? Oh yeah, I remember that. Yeah. That's right. Oh yeah. She was, she was fantastic. I loved it. It was really a great time.
A highlight from Dr. Susie Reilly: "Let's Sell Our House, Retire, and Buy More Bitcoin"

I'm so proud to call Dr. Susie Riley a friend, and you have to follow her on Twitter X, whatever you call it, because she has one of the funniest pages out there. Susie, thanks so much for joining me on the show. No, thanks so much for having me, Nat. I'm excited to be here and thankful to call you my friend as well. Well, I'm so excited to hear your Bitcoin journey because you have such an interesting backstory. A career dentist, retired recently. You have a clinic in El Zante I want to talk to you about, but let's just start from the very beginning. Where are you originally from? Tell me a little bit about your career in dentistry and how you got into Bitcoin. I grew up in San Francisco and then went to Ohio State for dental school where I met my husband. We settled on Atlanta to practice dentistry together, bought a practice there in 1998. And I've practiced until this year. Sold our practice and have retired to Hawaii. Along the way in 2018 is when I first started purchasing Bitcoin. My teen son at the time asked me to buy it. I just did it to appease him. It wasn't something that I studied or believed in at all. But that has led me down like so many Bitcoiners, just many rabbit holes. And I think it really changed how my husband and I saw our careers. We loved dentistry. We were incredibly successful, had all of the trappings of success, but Bitcoin made us realize that those trappings that we enjoyed, our cars, our homes, all of vacations, felt like traps. They no longer felt like a reward anymore. And so we started in 2021 looking at selling everything and trading our time for freedom instead of the up. Wow. OK. I want to dig into a little bit more of that because one of the things that amazed me is when you told me at one point that you sold your house to buy Bitcoin. So before we get there, let's just talk a little bit more about money. I mean, growing up, did you choose dentistry because it was going to potentially bring you financial stability, something that looked like it was going to be lucrative? Tell me a little bit about kind of your back story with money. So I didn't go into college thinking that I would be a dentist. In fact, it seemed like a disgusting career to me. I wanted to go into academia. I loved research. I loved publishing. But one of the grad students in our lab, his father was a dentist. He had a standing Friday date with him since dentists don't work on Friday generally. And he would tease me and say, this is a horrible idea for you to go into academia. I think. And I'd say, what do you think I should do, Dr. Kevin? You should be a dentist, which again, I just I couldn't imagine doing that. But he had me interned in his office and he was this beloved character. He had a great lifestyle. He lived a beautiful, beautiful family, family man, and it sold me. So I went all in knowing that I've always wanted a lot of kids. And so I then went to Ohio State for dental school, met my husband. We have four beautiful children and we practiced for 26 years together. Well, I mean, you have what so many people strive for, what they dream of, but you mentioned that it felt like trappings, like you were trapped by some of those things. So let's let's kind of dig into that a little bit more. I mean, having all of these things, especially being able to maybe afford the nice house, the nice car vacation, why did it feel like you weren't fully in the in the value of freedom and living out in a free sovereign way? Well, I think that when first of all, as a woman and a mom, a working mom, you always feel like you're never doing enough. I think when I was giving fully to my kids, I felt like I was neglecting my, you know, especially when you're a business owner, I'm like, oh, I'm neglecting running the business. When I would pour more time into the business, I definitely felt a lot of mom guilt about I wasn't giving to my kids the way I wanted to. So I think you're always balancing that, which is tough as a woman. And then so many times it's no matter how much we made over the years, we built this little practice to get this huge practice, very successful. But no matter how much we made, we somehow found a way to spend it. And, you know, we went to the bigger house we get. So it did begin to feel like it was this hamster wheel that we were constantly, you know, just we were working so hard that we wanted to reward ourselves. And so it'd be like we'd go on a bigger vacation, we'd get the fancier car, oh, we need another home. And you when look at it as a big winner, it starts to feel like this is a trap. This is what they want from us is to work harder and to just keep the system going. Did you notice just prices going up, especially in sort of those more scarce assets like real estate? I mean, I'm thinking about just the conversation that a lot of people are having this week about Paul Krugman saying, oh, we should move the inflation target to 3%. Yes. I feel like so many people, we don't study the financial system at a young age to be able to question something like the inflation rate. Did you kind of notice, oh, things are getting more expensive, but I can keep up? I think for me, and I think this is a lot of people, and it's sort of a shame to say it, again, as a business person that I thought I was educated, I thought I understood the financial system, but I really thought inflation is natural. Of course, things get more expensive over time. Of course, a soft drink costs 25 cents when our parents were young and it's $1 .50. I thought that it's just the way things are. I didn't question it. I didn't question fractional reserve banking. I thought the Fed was a government entity. I knew the dollar wasn't backed by gold, but I didn't realize it was backed by no gold. There's so many things that I didn't understand and just thought, why should I study that? I'm successful. I think that's by design. I think we're kept in the dark. I think it's meant to be that we're not supposed to understand. Even talking to so many of my normie friends now or my dentist friends now, if they're doing okay, they don't care to learn. It's like, it'll all be fine. That meme about it's fine, I hear it all the time. Why are you worrying about this? It always ends up fine. In order to preserve your wealth, were you investing essentially in real estate before and maybe a stock portfolio or how were you seeing that ability to plan for your kids to hopefully have some sort of a safety net and be able to take care of their needs into the future? Yeah. I mean, absolutely just pretty traditional stock portfolio. We had a wealth manager. We had commercial real estate, tried to always have some passive investment. We owned our building for our practice, all these things and did well. But when Tesla made the announcement in 2021 about that they had acquired Bitcoin, when that came out, my stupid little Bitcoin on my phone, rainy day that I would sock away a little bit, I looked at it and I was like, holy cow, my nothing investment that I really didn't pay attention to was now a significant amount of money and had outperformed everything else that I had invested in. And that's when, of course, I started to see Bitcoin differently. To me, it became, oh, this is something that people can get rich on. I think that's the first thought that comes to your head. So I went full, I'm going to invest in altcoins. I'm going to find the next Bitcoin again. I believed in all of those fallacies and I went full altcoin investing. I took trading classes, all those things. Oh, wow. Yeah. And did well, but it was a maxi on Twitter, a toxic maxi on Twitter. I just started to get on to Twitter in 2020. I'd been on for a long time, just not active. And it was a toxic maxi who told me I'm an idiot and that I knew nothing about Bitcoin. And here I was, I'm like, well, I'm going to be retiring from my Bitcoin holdings. And he's like, I'm not even talking to you about it until you read one book. You've obviously read nothing. And that was for me, of course, I had many people tell me, you need to study Bitcoin. You need to read more. You need to, and I was like, I'm watching YouTube videos. I need, I know all I need to know, but getting me where it hurt most, my ego, that is what caused me to really read the Bitcoin standard and it opened my eyes to everything. Same here. Thank you, Safedine. Yeah, Safedine changed my life too. Wait, so, okay. It was your son who first told you about Bitcoin. How did he know about it? And did you, I mean, you clearly had a journey, right? It's like, no, this isn't a thing. I'm skeptical. Yes, maybe it's a thing. I'm going to invest a little, but also venture out into all these other cryptocurrencies. Oh, no, this is the only, the real one that I should be relying on that has the properties of money. Can you talk about sort of that journey and how, how your son discovered it? Yeah, so my son, like most teenagers, you know, his age was 16, 17 at the time were gaming. And so a lot of these young guys would talk about Bitcoin. And so, I mean, he came to me and he was like, you need to put, you need to buy, you know, 10 ,000 And was I absolutely not. And, but he didn't let up. I mean, it must've been six, seven months. And eventually he put an app on my phone. It makes me laugh. It was called Coin Mama. And he was like, my mama, I don't even, I keep meaning to look if it's still around, but it's, that's where I got my first Bitcoin. And so, and I only did it because he installed it on my phone and it was too, he was relentless. So I, it was to shut him up. What year was this and how old was he? 2018, 17. And so, wow. Yeah. And, and so I think my first buy was $20 of Bitcoin. And then, and again, it wasn't, I genuinely believe this was something that criminals use, that it was dark web stuff that I didn't want anything to do with it. So I didn't look into it. I was, it was an easy buy on my phone. And so, but then I would kind of, I never really paid attention to news stories or anything like that. I would just, but if I didn't go to Starbucks that weren't that week or, Oh, I didn't, you know, get my hair cut or I'm just going to buy some Bitcoin this week. So I was buying like little $20 here, $10 there for, you know, three years. Wow. Okay. So, I mean, for you to go from kind of, you know, dipping your toe in, buying it here and there in, in place of what you might spend on a coffee to actually selling your home and putting it into Bitcoin, how did, how did you get to that level of conviction that this is something that's here to stay and it is the best investment I could possibly make? It really went, to me, the difference between crypto investors and Bitcoiners is Bitcoiners are always so well read and they study so much. And my life motto is to always be in this drunk environment around people smarter than me. And when I kept hearing from these people were smarter than me, this is what I believe in. You know, I mean, there's people, you pest a fish, James Lavish, so many of these people, Jeff Booth, you know, that I'm like, I look up to them so much and they put their money where their mouth is. And then I would study a little more and I'd read a book that they'd recommend and I'd, you know, learn a little more, something, some light bulb would go on and you know, things like, my real estate holdings, they've done well, but they didn't do as well as my Bitcoin. It was, and then when I say, oh, yeah, this inflation isn't natural. These things are, yes, it looks like it's, my homes are worth so much more, but it's really the money is worth that much less. There's such a shift when you study and you're not all about the money that you realize things are so broken and it makes you want to do something to help change the system. Well, you know, I'm curious because I totally agree with the people that have sort of made it in the fiat sense and they're doing okay financially. They probably don't have a reason to question the system that's working for them. But why do you think that we're having such a tough time breaking through to the normies and really getting a significant amount of the working class that is really struggling with the disadvantages of the current system and with inflation? Why aren't they taking a look at this as an alternative just in coming to it in droves? Well, I think when Bitcoin is doing well, I know my experiences at my phone, text messages, email is blowing up like in 21. I had everybody just so excited about Bitcoin and crypto at the time as well. Like, you know, everyone was ready to put their jobs and become full time traders. It seems like you could do no wrong. But I know since then, like there are some members of my family who are late 21, they were ready to invest a significant amount into Bitcoin. And then it's these terrible, you know, FBS and no plan and all these things. They hear these things and they just don't trust it. It sounds like some it sounds like a scam to them. And I think, again, that's intentional to have all of these things seem like they're Bitcoin. And it scares people off, especially like my parents generation. It's terrifying. Well, what will change that? I think one of the best things Bitcoiners do is to differentiate Bitcoin, not crypto. It's something that I say all the time is that, you know, if you understand what Bitcoin is and then if I have family members who start asking me about Dogecoin or something, you know, Ethereum. And I just start talking about this is how it's different. I will I'll see a little bit of the light bulb go on. But I think until we see, you know, legacy finance, really, I think I think these ETFs coming on the line will be terrific for older investors and give it more legitimacy. That will make a difference. It's time for a quick break to hear these messages from my partners. Fold is the best Bitcoin rewards debit card and shopping app in the world.

At first he said, okay, he was willing to sell the house because the carrot I had at the end is let's sell our house and retire.
A highlight from GEN C: Growing A Web3 Brand With Austin Hurwitz, Head of Business Development and Strategy at Doodles
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Avery, we are back again, as always, Gen C, not riding the wave, creating the wave. We have a great guest today in Austin Hurwitz. He's head of business development and strategy at Doodles. He was at Amazon before. He's been in the music business and really understands that ecosystem. So really excited to talk to him. But first, how are you? I am doing great. Excited to talk Doodles today. Excited about everything that's happening in this summer of on chain. Just actually walked past an outdoor billboard that is featuring on chain summer, which is, of course, Coinbase's big initiative, which you talk about. But summer's in full swing, Sam. How about you? How's life in New York? It's humid. It's hot. It's a little annoying, but people seem really happy. And yeah, I think things are great. I'm very happy that I'm not really traveling this month. I know you're all over the place. I have Europe coming next month because crypto never sleeps and crypto always travels. And crypto loves conferences. Crypto does love a conference. So there's a couple stories that sort of popped onto my feed that I thought we should talk about today. The first one, and I know we want to also address this with Austin because I think you guys were helping them, Doodles, with a Crocs collaboration, but everyone loves a sneaker drop. And it was just announced yesterday, Adidas and Bape, the Japanese brand, they're doing an NFT auction of 100 physical sneakers. You get the NFT. It's then redeemable for one of 100 only pairs, which is already going to make it a pretty rare sneaker for anyone who does collect. I know MoonPay is powering it from a commerce perspective. Is there no depth? Is there no bottom to the sneaker NFT ecosystem? Apparently not. Apparently everyone wants sneakers. Always, always, always. What I thought was interesting about that drop is in a world where I'm seeing so many brands look to put the tech under the hood, put the tech underneath, invisible, abstracted, words like that are floating around everywhere. Adidas is really leaning into putting the tech front and center and selling NFTs in a world where I was just looking at the Google trend line for NFTs over the past five years and you could probably imagine what it looks like. Interest has just dropped off so much in the world of NFTs, but I think it's interesting and it's actually quite differentiated that Adidas is leaning into this, really continuing to embrace the NFT ecosystem through their communication, through alts and through drops like this one, which are very focused on exclusivity and almost unabashedly focused on commercialization. Because it's an auction. This isn't something that's $5. I think that's actually why it's like, okay, they're doing it, they're leaning into it, they're doubling down in a world where like 90 % of people are pulling back. Right. So the thing that keeps jumping out for me is in a world of luxury collectibles, where you're seeing more and more younger people getting into that sector, and whether it's sneakers or it's wine or it's watches, I think people are starting to recognize, oh, I can actually invest in things and those assets can appreciate over time. So in that world, and I've actually been doing a lot of deep dives into this through the lens of wine, because wine actually, and I know we talked to LVMH about this weeks and weeks ago, but it's hard to ship wine and store it correctly and do all of that in investment grade wine, anything $100 or over. If you're never actually planning on drinking it, the worst thing you can do is take that wine and take possession of it. The best thing you could do is actually just keep it as an NFT, have it be in a storage facility that's at the right temperature where it doesn't move ever, and then wait until I sell it to you and then you decide I want to drink it for an anniversary and I'm going to redeem that NFT for the bottle. And so I think of that through the same lens, I look at these sneakers that I think there's something down the road in the world where half of my collection is really just a digital collection in a wallet and I don't need to physically house it. And then only when the person wants the physical asset do they get to request it. But a lot of the trading should happen in an on -chain manner that's secure and trust first and all of that. So I do think there's something really interesting. I'm very fascinated to see how much these go for. I'm not someone who will spend thousands of dollars on sneakers, but I have a feeling at only a hundred of this collaboration there's a chance these get pretty pricey. I agree with you. I'm excited to see and I also love that it's an auction so the market sets the price which I think is smart, it's strategic and it also kind of protects Adidas versus what we've seen some, you know, luxury hype drops do where they set the price and they set a specific quantity that don't move. I think this allows Adidas to treat this as a win sort of regardless of market pricing and demand. So I actually think it's a smart strategy especially how far in they already are. And the interesting layer is if you were part of the Adidas alts program of which there's a couple thousand all NFTs out there, any bid you make your bid is increased by 10 % if you hold the alt. So it actually just rewards that there might even be an interesting gamification of if you think these are gonna go for $2 ,500 that buying an NFT for $200 now may be a benefit in your bid thinking which is also like an interesting dynamic. The next areas I So there's two things that jump to mind. The first is Zynga, which is one of the most successful mobile gaming companies is about to come out with its first Web3 game. So they have a studio called Web3 Zynga, I think they're called. They have a trailer out for a project called Sugartown. And it's one where you can use NFTs, you can earn a point sort of currency that the currency itself is not a blockchain asset, the NFTs are blockchain assets. But I did think it was just interesting that the large game studios are starting to pay attention and something where, you know, just think of the people who still 10 years in are playing Candy Crush. You know, there is an unlock that will come of the folks who just love mobile games to play on the subway and planes that might enjoy the fact that maybe there's an earning mechanism to it. So I don't know if you have any thoughts on the Zynga game experience. So funny, I was actually just looking at a proposal for something for one of our partners with Activision, and they of course have Candy Crush. And yes, a lot of people like Candy Crush a lot, you know, millions, probably millions are playing it right now at this exact moment. I think it's interesting. I just don't think we've yet seen that much demand in any of these Web3 games. But if anyone can crack it, it's Zynga. You know a little bit about how the game market works. I'm sure many of our listeners do too. It's not like your first one's always a hit. Oftentimes, gaming companies will need to try a bunch to find that Candy Crush. So let's see, maybe Sugartown is it. It's gonna be exciting. And related to that, the first time I ever heard of Zepeto was through you. Zepeto is an Asian market metaverse. Yes, very large one. Very large one. I think there's 300 plus million people who are on Zepeto. And they just announced a deal with Jump Crypto to take $13 million in seed money to start incorporating NFTs and potentially on -chain currencies into their metaverse. So they're a competitor to Fortnite, to Roblox, to Minecraft, to some of the biggest ones out there just by their sheer numbers. So it feels like this has the beginnings of a big deal. We don't know if it's a big deal yet. But as I think you and I've spoken so many times that gaming may be the way that Web3 gets to the masses, and maybe in ways that they don't even know they're playing in Web3. But I thought this was like kind of a good signal in some respects. Did you have any thoughts about it? Yeah, I bet Rudy Lee is behind this. We should have Rudy come on at a certain point on Gen -C. He has actually been thinking about this for years. And we've been talking to these guys about a bunch of different things over the last two and a half years. But I think that they are looking very closely at what is happening in this Web3 world and thinking about how this can integrate with both their immersive experiences that they've built already and ones that they might build in the future. So I'm excited to see where this heads. I, you know, appreciate that they're coming in now, a little like post hype cycle, because they've been doing their homework and being really thoughtful. And the only build I'd have to what you just said, Sam, is I think it's a compliment. It's not like an or, like you have a TikTok, and you have an X, and you have an Instagram, they're all slightly different. I think the same is true for those like gaming experiences. Like just because you play Fortnite doesn't mean you won't play Zapeto. In fact, there's a lot of overlap between those audiences. Some distinction, of course, and some demographic trends. But I think increasingly, we'll see consumers playing in multiple immersive experiences sort of depending on their mood, depending how they're feeling, depending on if there's, you know, a piece of content that's interesting and exciting. Yeah, I think what you're saying is something that we always forget as consumers, but we know really intuitively as marketers, right? In the sense that, you know, if you were listening to Christina Aguilera during the day, you're also listening to Nelly Furtado during the day. Exactly. And maybe the Nelly Furtado audience was a little cheaper to get, but you knew that that's how you got to the Christina's audience in a more cost effective way, right? So I think that the AND strategy of maybe there are certain assets that are completely tied to in game, and maybe there are certain assets which get access because there's a loyal and rabid community, that I think is an additive strategy that why would you not think about it if you were in the metaverse game, which doesn't mean you have to give the keys to everything away immediately. It just says we're willing to dip our toes in and see where this goes. And then maybe it creates a network effect that becomes giant in our business. Per usual. Brilliant, Sam. I agree. Anytime I drop a Nelly Furtado reference, I... It's spot on. I was gonna say people know how old I am. So it is what it is. All right, Avery, we are going to jump into a break. When we get back, we do have Austin Hurwitz, Head of Business Development and Strategy at Doodles. Really excited to hear from him. And we'll see you after the break. All right, we are here with Austin Hurwitz. Austin is the Head of Business Development and Strategy at Doodles. Super excited to talk to Austin. There's a lot happening with Doodles right now in the world. But first, Austin, just to answer the question, what is a doodle? That's a great question, Sam, Avery, great to be here. A doodle is anything that ignites your creative expression. It's playing a sport. Anything that gets you really igniting your imagination is what we want to empower through doodling. Yeah, it's a joy to work in such a company with a mission like that. But some of them seem to be like, made of vapor, seem kind of invisible. Like I'm just, you know, and I know you've not been there that long, but I'm wondering is like from a Genesis perspective, right? Like doodle is just in my head is creativity in a nutshell, right? So was that kind of part of the genesis of the artwork? Yeah, I mean, for those that know Burnt Toast, I think his entire basis of art is around creativity. And he recently had the opportunity to also serve as a host in the doodle campaign for Red Bull. So he's always been about really expressing creativity through his art. And I think, you know, the doodles, the 10 ,000 generative PFPs are a reflection of that. So it's not just the humanoids, if you will, but it's also ice creams and popsicles and mine, which is a coffee head, which I think really identifies well with my personality. It's highly caffeinated at all times. So yeah, it is very much like joy in a variety of ways. That's amazing. And we will definitely get to all things doodle art. But Austin, we want to hear also about you. How did you get into this world of doodling? How did you get into this role? What's been your journey and what's kind of landed you as the head of strategy and business development at a company like doodles? Yeah, I had a very interesting journey. I worked in entertainment for the last decade. Coming out of school, I went to work at Amazon out in Seattle, serving as the head of independent label licensing for Amazon Music. So I helped negotiate contracts with record labels and get Amazon Music Unlimited off the ground, which is like their Spotify competitor. It was actually in this process that I started to dive into crypto. Before we went live, I had the amazing responsibility of ensuring that we had rights to everything that was going to be distributed, which for anyone who knows anything about music licensing is a pretty tall task because the data is all over the place. You have labels that have some of the data, you have distributors that have some of the data, publishers, a lot of splits aren't even put out into the world before a song is released. And so I spent weeks on end looking at the Copyright Office records to determine if we had someone to pay or not. And that kind of clicked in my head of, okay, I can see a need for decentralization for a ledger, and really sparked my interest in crypto. I wrote a white paper around the licensing implications of crypto back in 2017, and then kind of put it to bed for a little bit. The first wave didn't really work out. As people know from back then, they tried to take a top -down approach, and none of the labels were really biting on that. And yeah, so I ended up working at Amazon Music for five years. I then went down to LA to kick off Troy Carter and Susie Roode's company, Q &A, which is now Venice Music, and operated as the head of product there. So I built the distribution software to get music on the Spotify's and Apple's and Amazon's of the world, took us out of stealth mode, and then actually led our Web3 efforts as that big wave was coming around music. I did that for about two years, actually got into doodles my first week as part of really diving headfirst into Web3. And so I got to meet the founders in Twitter spaces every single day, was going to all the events, and was really trying to actively participate. And then when I left Venice, an opportunity came up where Julian had actually reached out. I was looking to expand the team and felt based on our interactions working together on the music side when he was at Billboard and I was at Venice, we had a great working relationship. So I joined at the top of the year and it's been an incredible ride so far. Love that. We certainly talk a lot about music here. I personally come out of the music industry a long, long time ago. And one of the things I ask anyone who has been involved in the Web3 side of the music is kind of like, what state are we in the evolution of on -chain music? We hear a lot of people wanting to be the Web3 Spotify, right? I think most of people don't really understand the actual logistics of streaming audio and how the economics work and how the server space question and how much amount of logistics you have to be in the music industry. So my question for you, just as a tangent, but knowing that you spent some time in this space is, do you think on the music side, we are going to get to a point where Web3 is challenging more of the Apple Music's of the world, or should we be looking at Web3 and musicians more along the lines of early collectibles and being able to say you were at the first show or you have the first band t -shirt? Where do you land on that spectrum? Yeah, I find myself oscillating between the two and I think it's still really too early to tell none of the products that are out there have really reached product market fit. But I have been really encouraged by the amount of iteration that is happening in the space. I look at a player like Sound XYZ, where they started being this effectively the sound cloud of Web3 and enabling collectors to own almost like trading cards of music as they come out. And they have like rapidly changed and iterated over time where these things used to go for an ETH. Now you can get in for like $5 where it used to be on ETH Baynet. Now you can get them on any L2 imaginable. And I think that iteration is going to continue to happen. I think it's very challenging Web3 for Music to directly compete with streaming. I think they serve very different use cases. I've always naturally gravitated towards the superfan use case. So less of the mainstream, I just want to listen to my Spotify while I go on a run, and much more of how am I developing a deeper relationship with this artist. And so I look at a company like Medallion, what they're doing and really bridging the web two and a half, if you will, the ability to create these fan communities, which are built on top of blockchain, but you can sign in with an email address, they'll create you a custodial wallet, like they really focus on not the financialization of the NFT, but much more of this is how you're going to track your provenance with the artist. So being able to collect things over time, being able to reward you as a fan, a lot of the early discussions around Web3 Music are, this was so great for the artist. And I absolutely agree, but people really had a hard time with how is this great for fans. And I think they're actually nailing a use case when it comes to fan communities that I expect to see a lot more traction on. So that's kind of how I'm evaluating the space right now. I think we're going to see more and more artists jump on board, particularly as they want to have a direct relationship with their fans and fans are looking to declutter everything that they're seeing on socials and build a more intimate relationship with these artists.
From Childhood Trauma to Adult Freedom: Susan Gold's Brave Journey
"Susan Gold was raised in a challenging and chaotic family system, the middle child of five, to fully thrive, she bravely chose to meet the demons of her upbringing that we're continuing to repeat, her book, Toxic Family, Transforming Childhood Trauma Into Adult Freedom, is about that journey. In a small rural town in central Pennsylvania, young Susie is facing trauma as the middle child in a violent and chaotic household. Her brilliant alcoholic astrophysicist father and equally ingenious mentally ill homemaking mother have collided in dysfunction, creating five children in short succession with covert and overt abuse running rampant, a riveting and intense chronicle of a childhood filled with harsh initiations all led to a masterful and thought -provoking transformation. The ebullient belief and determination of a young girl with a vision who would not bend to self -destruct, but rather would convert her experience to triumph are told masterfully in this stunning work. Susan leaves us with support and practical tools she uses today to move forward, centered around each section's theme, breath work, journaling, meditation, movement, all combined in a creative healing process. She is leading retreats, webinars, workshops, and private sessions to help others drop outdated storylines and programming in exchange for living from the heart in authentic freedom as adults. So if you want to find out more about Susan, you can go to her website, susangold .us. Welcome, Susan. Thanks so much for being here today. Melissa, I'm thrilled to be here. And oh my gosh, you are leading us with such heart and such creativity. Your website is beautiful. Your manifesting postcards are amazing. And the book idea is genius. I'm going to go hit click and put it in my cards. Oh, thank you. Yeah. It was really great to put it together. You know, it was, I mean, you know, we're going to talk about your book. Now your book is a very, very personal memoir of some very painful experiences that you went through. Like mine, I mean, I, you know, pain got me to where I needed to go, but mine was more fun putting together and light, you know? So I can't even imagine what that must have been. Having the courage to write your story, you want to share a little bit with us about your story and what made you feel like you wanted to share it with people? Well, in 2007, I was told by an Irish clear that I had a book to write and I promptly shoved that idea under the closest carpet. 2019, Then in I had back to back intuitive tell me I had a book to write the last one telling me I had three books to write. And I thought, okay, I better get busy before it's a fricking library. So I was encouraged to write my own personal and professional experience. I was told it was unique and I said, how is this unique? It's sort of like everyone. But I got to it and yeah, no, my story isn't like everyone's, thank goodness. And toxic family is not my title. It's my publisher's title, but my title was transforming childhood trauma into adult freedom because that's what it is to me. I've done so much work over decades and it really found healing. And Melissa, maybe it's remnants of my Southern California days, but I do believe that I was placed in my family with purpose and I have tremendous respect for the roles that my dad and my mom played along with my siblings. And I have gratitude and that's been a transformative shift for me
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss the Heartbreaking Loss of Beloved Dogs
"Warned you, we've got John Zmirak as our guest today. John, a couple of things I have to tell you before we begin. Number one, I'm going away, and where I go, you cannot come. I'm getting on a boat, and have you watched Key Largo? No. Well, I believe Sydney Green Street is going to be on the boat. I'm getting on a boat on Friday, and so I don't know that we're going to get to do this for a couple of weeks, so I wanted to tell you that. Then I wanted to tell you something. I didn't want to tell you. I was thinking of calling you to tell you this, and then I thought, it's too emotional. I'm just going to mention it on the air, that we had to put Georgie down a few days ago. Oh, man. I'm so sorry. You're the dog whisperer in my life, and you told me what that would be like, and I kind of didn't believe you because I'd never been through it before. So I just thought, let me just tell them on the air with a lot of people listening. What happened? Well, she was just a tremendously energetic, youthful dog for 11 years. People would stop Suzanne on the street and say, how old is your puppy? She just had this incredible, you know, but something happened with her heart six months ago, and Suzanne had to give her three medications twice a day, and we thought we'd have her for a couple of years, but it just got worse, and the vet was like emphatic that you need to do this. But man, I thought of you a lot because I know how much you love dogs. Losing my dog Susie when she was almost 17 to cancer was worse than losing either of my parents. Now, maybe I'm a terrible person, but she was a great dog.
Three Leftie Justices Set up the Next Culture Fight for Democrats
"About transgender care for children where you had the Democrats openly advocating right now for the idea of biological a male competing against a biological female in college and then beating her of course and taking her place on the team was that even an issue is that even on the radar or that we we would have a debate over whether or not parents have a right to know if their kids are going to school and Johnny is telling everybody he's Susie in New Jersey right now the Attorney General of New Jersey is suing three high school districts those three districts have passed policies Jersey is that if that a child identifies as transgender requests to be called a different name requests to wear different then the parents will be notified now as a parent I want to be notified because I think my is child having a mental health crisis and I want to do something about it I want to help them deal with it but the state Jersey of New Jersey says we know better than you so we're suing to say you as a parent don't have a right to know about your minor children the fact that they are saying that they're transgender every Democrat in America every Democrat in Congress voted to allow men to compete against women every single one of them my point is that there are suburban women who are college educated they're very highly educated who find all of this to be repulsive repulsive they don't like the idea of 13 year old kids getting their bodies mutilated they don't like the idea of their daughter who worked so hard for years and my son's on the swim team and the kids on these teams they work, it's amazing, year round they're swimming early morning practices getting the in cold pool at the start of the year at the start of the season Saturday morning swim meets Wednesday swim meets you get all these different swim meets and everything else

"Hi, I'm Kia Damon. I'm a Florida born chef, writer, host, and recipe developer. I served as an executive chef of a New York City restaurant at the age of 24 and became cherry bomb magazine's first culinary director at 25. I've been named one of 16 chefs changing black food in America by The New York Times and Forbes 30 under 30 in food and beverage. In 2021, I found it Kyiv is the people a budding mutual aid effort focusing on food apartheid in Brooklyn. I'll be your guest host for this month of America. This month, we're talking about taste makers, we're celebrating the black chefs, cooks, and food historians who created new food ways and preserved important culinary stories of the past. Today, we're talking about the first black nurse in the Civil War, who nurse black soldiers back to health and cook them delicious meals. Let's talk about Susie king Taylor. Susie king Taylor was born on August 6th, 1848 on a plantation in liberty county, Georgia. Susie's mother was enslaved, and so was she. But at 7 years old, Susie and two of her siblings got the opportunity to leave the plantation. They traveled to Savannah, Georgia, to live with their grandmother, a free woman. At the time in Georgia, it was illegal for black people to learn to read or write. That didn't stop Susie. And Savannah, she and her brother began attending a secret school for black children. To avoid detection, the school students would wrap their books and paper and enter the school one at a time. From a young age, Suzy used her education to help her community. She would write passes for her family and friends so they could travel at night without being arrested. In April of 1862, a year after the Civil War began, Susie left Savannah and traveled to saint Catherine's island, a community off the coast of Georgia. There, Suzy, her uncle and his family received protection from the Union Army. A few weeks later, they were taken to saint Simon's island where hundreds of black Civil War refugees were being held. On saint Simon's at only 14 years old, Suzy founded the first ever school for black people. She taught around 40 free black children during the day and their parents at night. During her time on saint Simon's, Susie's camp was often raided by confederate soldiers to capture refugees and re enslave them. The men living on the island started a militia to fight the soldiers off. When the Union Army caught wind of this, they sent a captain out to saint Simon's to recruit the men for a black regiment of the Union Army. Thus, the 33rd United States colored infantry was born. Susie joined the regiment as a laundress and soon after married Edward king an officer. She was only 15 years old, and though she started off washing clothes, she soon expanded her list of titles. When a large part of the regiment came down with a smallpox variant, Suzy, who had already been vaccinated against smallpox, became their nurse. She also took on the task of teaching the soldiers how to read. She learned how to assemble, disassemble, and shoot a gun. And she was the regiment's cook. After one particularly harrowing battle, she wanted to cook something special for the soldiers, but all she had on hand was turtle eggs and a few cans of condensed milk. She had never cooked with turtle eggs before, but she decided to try something new and ended up making a delicious custard that she served to the wounded troops. While the black soldiers in the regiment were compensated for their service, Susie was never paid for her work in the Union Army. In 1866, after the war had ended, she returned to Savannah and opened a private school for black children. She charged a dollar a month in tuition. That same year, her husband Edward died in a work accident. Soon afterwards, a free public school opened in Savannah, putting Susie out of business. She spent a few years trying to open other private schools, but most of her attempts failed. Finally, in 1872, she began working as a laundress for a wealthy white family. After a year, she became their cook. Her food was so good and won a prize for excellent cooking at the summer fair. In 1874, Susie moved to Boston, where she worked as a domestic servant. She grew to love the city, and later wrote she felt that black people were treated more fairly there than in the south. In 1879, Suzy remarried and left her job. Soon after, she helped found core 67, which helped raise money for black Civil War veterans. Susie died in 1912. Her story lives on in the books she self published in 1902 called. Reminiscences of my life in camp. It was one of the first memoirs self published by a black woman about the Civil War. All month we're talking about tastemakers.

As always, we're taking a break for the weekend. Talk to you on Monday..
Susie Moore: More Questions Than Answers in the Biden Administration
"I think this speaks to sort of the larger theme of today's whole broadcast as I've been talking on this show one of the things I've been saying is look around you Do things feel like they're okay Do they feel like they're right No everything feels like it's in chaos And we know this just from working in a business together When you have solid leadership everything is top down so then people are more stable the conversations are more stable the flow is more organic It's just an easier work environment when you have solid leadership at the top not necessarily that that person is like micromanaging but there is a sense of comfort that good leadership gives you And right now to me it's very obvious that we don't have any leadership actually in this country and that the government seems split that one hand doesn't always know what the other hand is doing and it's creating this sort of chaos that is manifesting itself throughout every other aspect of society whether you're talking about at the ballot box or at the grocery store I think you're exactly right You want to know who's scaring the ship and you want to know that whoever it is has competence and knows what they're doing And we don't have we have more questions than answers on both counts there It's certainly very difficult to buy into and assume that Joe Biden himself is very much of any of this Just based on his current status in the kind of ongoing issues that he seems to be having And then you know you don't know who all is pulling the strings behind the scenes And we know we've known for a long time that there was bad stuff involving the bidens and certainly have in some respects kind of lost hope that there would be any accounting of that in any accountability for it But now there does seem to be a shift and to me just reads like okay the people that don't want Biden to try and run for a second term are putting screws to everything
Susie Moore: Unbelievable That Biden Didn't Know About Special Counsel
"I wonder because I say Biden but I really think it's Jill You have decided yeah of course we're going to run again in 24 Gavin Newsom has been campaigning even though he's made a statement Oh I'm not running for president That's Joe Biden We're going to support Biden But he's still campaigning So when I put that together with the fact that suddenly we're really interested in the bad things that the Biden administration is doing I'm wondering if the Democrat party is trying to enact some kind of cool here I don't know what they want to have in place of it or if it is connected to what Newsom is doing But the idea that suddenly they want to hold by an accountable is fascinating Now The White House is saying that they did not know that Merrick Garland was going to issue this special counsel And they did not know that he was going to make this announcement Do you buy that I don't I mean they might have some plausible deniability there They might be kind of using weasel words to say that But according to our latest reporting on this when Garland gave his press conference he indicated that he had appointed a special counsel on November 10th So it's very difficult for me to believe that a special counsel has been appointed for the past two months to look into this And the Biden administration is just now the Biden White House I should say Because he's part of the administration of course It's just now learning of this There's no doubt I just feel like there's more factions and wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall right now and see what's scrambling is going on behind the scenes
Susie Moore: The Media Agenda Behind Biden Classified Documents
"And that's interesting I mean we're not in the business of totally connecting the dots for you There are some liability issues but it is interesting to consider that there are some foreign issues that the Biden administration or before that he became the Biden administration the bidens wanted to keep I'll say safe And so took them But that whole the whole idea of what's going on right now sissy with this being compared to what they did to Trump suddenly the media is really interested in classified documents for the first day that this story broke There were all kinds of excuses flying across the media right The talking points had gone out It was like oh this is not the same as the Trump thing But now the media narrative and the media mood seems to have shifted a little bit I played a clip from Ed O'Keefe from CBS sort of having a contentious exchange with KJ P over this and the media now seems to be looking to hold Biden accountable for these documents and I'm not I'm not exactly convinced that it's an honest situation that's going on here What's your opinion about the media point of view of this situation Yeah I think I share your instincts on this The first thing that I asked as soon as this story broke early in the week was okay why is this coming out now Somebody has an agenda here Somebody decided made a determination that it was beneficial to get this information in this story out there It didn't just happen Is it people that are opposed to Biden running for a second term putting that agenda into play or is this something where it's being orchestrated by the Biden White House to try and get ahead of it And sort of mute the impact of it that I don't know But there's no question in my mind that there is some as you put it a river like an undercurrent here This isn't just fact finding and journalism It's something there's something else going on here
Susie Moore: Biden Documents Contain Info on Ukraine, U.K., and Iran
"We've been covering at red state these Biden document drops for since the beginning now And I have to say Susie that I have a couple of questions I would love to get your comments on First of all it's really hard to know how concerned we should be about these documents because we don't know what they are Have you heard any rumors or done any research on what they might be and why we should be concerned about it at all Yeah I haven't done a lot of research on it but I did see a story that came out yesterday that indicated that the documents at least the ones that were found at the Penn Biden center had to do were related to Ukraine and the UK and Iran So they clearly had to deal with foreign foreign affairs of some sort But I haven't seen I haven't delved deeper into that to see exactly what they're saying they were

"You've got quite a bit of experience in that realm and so it's natural. It's comfortable for your previous podcast. I think you enjoy it. You want to produce something really good that you feel great about and with the new one. There's a lot to it and it might be difficult even putting it off to production company but you also are owning all the ip intellectual property before you're owning all of that so it makes sense that you would control it. I generally try to preach and teach that. It's not something that we need to be doing. Podcasters in general. This obviously doesn't apply to you susie for most of us out there because we don't have the experience that you have or we don't have the level of production necessary that you have. It can be really helpful for us to offload that off to maybe a ten or fifteen dollar an hour person and allow ourselves to focus on two hundred dollar an hour tasks in three hundred dollar an hour task revenue generating activities and being the star of your show the content leading somebody handle kind of like those other things especially if you have another job i wondered though if somebody is listening and they do wanna do their own post production just kind of what companies you use. What software you use to edit it what you think about as you do the post production and maybe that can help somebody new to think of either like oh. I don't wanna do that shit myself. Or they can say something to the effect of okay. That's what it takes. I want to do it on my own. So that's what i'm gonna do listen. Necessity is the mother of invention right. So when your budget is limited. And if you can't pay someone to do it and i don't know all these resources that you're talking about but i know that they're out there. I know that you can get people to do all that stuff. Marketing for you can go onto fiber and there's people that are there that are trying to get built up their resumes. So there's people out there you have to do. You can do some reconnaissance and find people that can really do a good job but there are a lot of things you can do yourself. That aren't that hard to learn. So a i work on. Adobe premiere and i will work on that for editing. Because i'm doing video as well. And i learned that from my partner because he is an editor by trade so i had to learn that. I wouldn't say that everybody can do it. It's not that easy but it's not that hard so if you really wanted to just learn the basics of editing.

"Me. I needed to find something in that that worked for me in riverside. Fm came up at the time. When i was like desperately looking for a platform that was a little bit more stable audio wides and that did the trick. So yeah i want to jump into that for a minute or two with you susie. If you don't mind me interrupting you there. I'll just keep going with zoom. I still use zoom even though awesome companies like riverside dot. fm are around so zoom dot. Us that'll be in the show notes. You'll see it in the resources section riverside dot. Fm that'll be in the show notes since we talked about those. So if you're listening just want to check those out you can literally just click on those links. It'll take you there just to share. I'm doing usually about six seven or eight episodes on a wednesday or at least eight during the week. And so what ended up happening when i was using riverside. There is one of two ways to do it. One of the ways is that you let somebody schedule or you schedule with them manually. And after that then you have to go in just create a new link so that it's a unique link for that one thing and so that was one option. Where took that extra time to just make sure that each and every episode and i was doing a two week would jump in and be able to have a unique link. If we didn't do that the other option that i had was we schedule. When somebody goes on my calendar i use callously. Day would always use my personal link and the issue with using the personal link with eight episodes. A week is there's inevitably people testing it out at random times. They're like i'll let me just make sure this link works. And so they click the link and so here. I am already in a podcast and i'm getting interrupted with other people that i'm gonna podcast with later in the day and it would just drive me crazy so with zoom and calland louis in calendar. We'll put that into the show as well. We tally it. Integrates automatically with my zoom so that it will propagate a brand new like unique zoom link each and every time somebody schedules and that's been helpful for me so i've actually let go of some of the audio quality some of the ability to edit the two different.

I think that there's something to that. And you know along that same vein. I happen to have gone out the other night on a saturday night. Holy shit and i think it was like eight thirty. I mean good night that was kinda late to get started for for me for real And i went out with my friend who's also divorced. And she said you know what's funny. She's like stacy. We never go out like this on the weekends like to a bar on the weekend. No we typically get together over lunch May be a happy hour. But like a saturday night out does not really happen in either of our world's very often and she was like you know she always she said. I think a lot of my married friends think that i like live this glamorous life of like going out all the time which is like the furthest thing from the truth and we both came to the conclusion that that might be why we get left out of some things that happened over the weekends with our married friends because they assume or think that we are out living it up like we have these wild nightlife of dates and parties and big social functions. All the time. And i mean if you look at my instagram you would think that's how i live to but i swear a couple of big happy hours a month that are really related to my podcast and the rest of it is lake lunches. You know like coffee getting together doing things with my daughter so consider that too. I mean let's not let's not be too negative and bag on our married friends. Some of it is just perception and again. I think the way that you can help your married friends to understand where you're coming from is just to have a direct conversation about it..

"Now you're listening to episode twenty. What susie says of sally. This is your host stacey ymer. Thanks for joining me. There is no hotter topic than divorce to bring about speculation rumors and gossip and in this episode. I'm going to share several real life examples. I'm going to talk about why i think this happens. And how we can handle it as single people friends and loved ones of single people. I'm also going to discuss being ostracized as a single parent as well as some of the misnomers of single parenting. You know hot wild lives. Were living over here. Single parents cheese. Everyone's jealous of it. Totally kidding say that ingest now all jokes aside these rumors this gossip it can ruin. Reputations can ruin lives livelihoods and how about the unintended consequences the effects that it could have on the children involved in the divorce after receiving several dams on this topic and having lots of conversations with friends. I'm feeling not fucking fired up. So so the first story that i'm going to share with you comes directly from one of my listeners. Ended absolutely breaks my heart. She and her husband broke up during the pandemic. now they live in a tiny town in southeastern alabama. The kind of tiny town as she describes it that has to red lights. The nearest wendy's twenty three miles away now. It's the kind of town where everybody knows everybody's business and when they started their separation during the pandemic they both wanted to keep things quiet so she pared down her friends list on social media. She shut down her instagram aside from one photo she's introverted and likes to keep her privacy so she felt it best just to mind her own business and so she did now. Her husband is a little bit more extroverted a little bit more vocal on social media while they have an amicable split. The gossip fell on her. Now the local townspeople without any real evidence or things to talk about made their own story lineup. You see my listener friend..

You might need a restoration in your sense of identity restoration in perspective or in a relationship but no matter what what happens in our soul happens in ourselves. We are physiologically spiritually very connected and the invitation of the lord when he says you know when scripture says in psalm twenty three he restores my soul. It is so much more far reaching than we could possibly imagine in. That is my invitation. Let's explore what god meant when he said that. What is the invitation for us. What our our self limiting beliefs. What our god limiting beliefs and could it be that. The gospel kingdom are far more reaching than we once thought. I love that. I love that you know as i was reading it. I kept thinking of the verse. Where jesus said i've come to give life and that more abundantly and i just feel like so many of us settle for less than all that god has. Why do you think that is. I believe we don't believe in trust in his love to the extent that he wants us to and i i'm the poster child for that for many years i was saved. I still nov loved.

AJ Contemplates Death and Farewells
"As I've gotten older and I've got a 16 and a 13 year old, I can't imagine. And now that I've been in bed and I see you a couple times thinking about death, watching your father kiss you and cry, it was fucking, you know. I remember the time when the first time you got cancer and they took mom took me a Sloan ketter and one of my earliest memories was probably fucking three or whatever it was. It's terrible. And she said, wave to daddy and camera. I remember that. It was now I know it's a camera, but I didn't understand 'cause I was like two or three that what do you mean daddy? Like she's like, daddy could see you and I didn't get it. There's waiting in there. Later on that my father said he was just bowling 'cause I could just he could see me in the camera waving at him and that was that I couldn't go up there. But you know like when I was in ICU, I'm not going to say I was dying, but there were three days that it was touch and go. And let me tell you the truth of the matter. You always think, I'm going to fucking say the right shit. I'm going to write up a speech and make my kids know help. Do it yourself a favor. I've already written things to my son and daughter that they'll read forever and it'll make them feel better about their daddy. You can't do it when you're in the hospital. You just can't. You can't dictate it, you can't say it. You feel like shit. Hold on. I don't know who this is. I'm going to do this live on there. Don't answer that. Susie, calling with the vehicle service department. No, but when you're in the hospital, you can't do what you want to do. You really can. So you got to do those things ahead of time. So I have files, which I'll you need to make sure you know they are. So my kids can see them. But yeah, that was a very, it's a very scary time.
Never Forgive, Never Forget
"Suzanne somers once said forgiveness his gift you give yourself. Does it come with a gift receipt. Susie oh pro winfrey once said true forgiveness. His win you can say. Thank you for that experience oprah. I love you but if someone murdered my family at least the ones i enjoy i would. Under no circumstances ever in a million years forgive them and if forced to do so to adhere to fundamentalist ideals. I would. Intern hate myself for being a fraud. And betraying my truth here at mind body. No saw we never forgive and we never forget we also so don't dwell but we don't wish them well. There is a myriad of intrinsic quandries attached to the notion of forgiveness to start both the definition and connotation of forgiveness is all about other person the motherfucker that did you dirty and setting them free.

"To speak to me another moment. And lord itemize to you and trusting that you are my provider like you said you. Would you know bible says faith comes from hearing and for me. That is the way i've had to do it. First and foremost caving my connection with god so strong and just we're constantly renewing my mind in the goodness of god and then i don't let that stuff go for very long when i'm getting harassed i stand up got her armor and i i tell it what's what so for me. Those are the things that really helped me but praying out loud and praying the scriptures. Those kinds of things are really huge. Yeah well jesus did it right in this station. He he quoted deuteronomy to the devil few times seen. He knew he knew the truth. Spoke the truth back to all three of those temptations. So that's absolutely right you know. I'm so glad that you wanted to talk about your beautiful purpose of you. Have so many books we could talk about. But i'm really glad to. Especially and i want to end with this question with to get your thoughts. The pandemic has made a lot of us. Rethink our lives. Rub think about our purpose. what are we here for. What really matters what doesn't matter you know. I think everybody has been forced to stop and think a lot not just through death and loss which always wakes us up but Just you know overall What would you say because you wrote the book before the pandemic What thoughts do you have now. In sort of seeing the way we think about our purpose what our life is supposed to be about in light of that. What what are some of suzy's thoughts at this time That's a really great question. I think the books ten years old. If i remember right. I felt the nudge when you asked me which book for some reason. I thought this is why we need to talk about today. Among i really do believe i hear a lot of people saying wanna go back to before covid but the thing is when when life shakes you see what's in you and i think we've been able to see the state of the church. I think we've been able to see the state of us as human beings and in times of plenty and times of favor and wealth and all those kinds of things you can get away with a lot and cover up a lot but when things get shaken what cannot be. Shaken can be clearly seen so in some ways what this enemy meant for evil. God is using for good. Because he's showing us the state of the church and the state of our hearts in many people who were hiding in their business and stuffing their wounds their traumas their self limiting god limiting beliefs into the basement of their soul. Were forced to reckon with those during twenty twenty and what. I really believe with all my heart. Is it. if there's ever a time to be thinking about your god given purpose it is right now because there's a world right now. That has been traumatized by all of its gone on with a social unrest with the pandemic with the election. Tensions everything in weaning to be in a position to build a minister life and hope to a world in need in prior to this. I mean like four years ago. I think it was maybe five barna Issued a report. That said there's almost no difference. Between christians hangups inhabits and unbelievers habits as far as on paper like our default responses tang citing fear..

"Got a pause there because that is powerful. I'm going to read it again So listeners hear this because this is a word for you today. Here's what susie wrote. Jesus created you with a very specific purpose in mind to live the powerful significant life assigned to you by god. Then you onto to write. You must with god at your side. Confront the bullies of fear insecurity and inferiority. You must be great enough to walk by faith be taneja enough to grab hold of his promises and never let go and be humble enough to admit that you need him every single hour. He beckons you toward a battle. But you stand on the winning side. I just love those. Those are some marching orders. That's exciting news. And then you add no one and nothing can deter you from. You're calling only unbeliev can so that battle is within right. That's the that's that's the challenge. That's what you've been talking about already. I think it's within an without. You know i think we are getting our own way with the stuff with the insecurities fears that we leave unchallenged. Within us we have to roofless with our insecurities with allies that a subtle into our soul. And then the enemy you know. He said a long time to study us. You know you think about what. I walked through the child. I'm just. I bet every one of you could look back over your shoulder at your childhood and remember the first time you felt like you were not enough in you can just know that the enemies threat against you is very connected to your threat against him like he saw your potential before the you ever did and this is why. I really do believe this gym. That many many christians go through life knowing their saved. But they don't know they're loved and to me. That is first and foremost because when you live loved and you live out of the love of god and you really believe nothing can separate you any. You believe that you're not what you do. Your someone got loves then you can go on to do things for his namesake that are disproportionate to who you are. It's one of the reasons. I love that equations to ten comes after two eight nine. I we renew by grace. We are saved through faith not of ourselves as a gift of god not a result of works so no one can boast in fact paul toxins scripture when you try to reconstruct a system where you earn your way improve yourself..

"Because i've overcome the world but isaiah a twelve says. Do not call conspiracy everything. This people calls a conspiracy. Do not fear what they fear and do not dread it and so it does come back to that. What what is this doing in my heart. And even when. I find myself contradicting the lord and saint. Yeah but and i'm exalting my situation. I don't usually have a problem doing that. To other people it's mostly me where i exalt might quote unquote truth above what the lord has already promised me what he's already said and it sat reminding ourselves of the promises of god and that's why again i just love this devotional because you just bring us back to some of the basic things that the lord has said to help recalibrate ours. All i love it. Okay fiery one more for you please please. This one is towards the beginning of the devaux and tried to get in scripture when it's called deal with a disconnect genesis seventeen seventeen than abraham bow down to the ground but he laughed himself in disbelief. How could i become a father at age of one hundred thought. And how can sarah have a baby. When she's ninety years old. God promised abraham at the generations would come through abraham and sarah his response. He bowed low but he laughed on the inside. How often do we do the same. We sing about god's faithfulness but do we really believe he'll do the impossible. Our situation when the gap widens between what are outward christian actions reflect and what are inward beliefs reveal. We must make noted it but without condemnation. We often arrive here because we're weary in the waiting tired from battle but we must not allow the gap to linger within us for very long re-engage. Your faith today. Remember god could do in a moment with takes us a lifetime to accomplish. And when faith awakens your heart and inspires your actions will the stuff of miracles. And the it's time to deal with the disconnect. Got us better than we know. He's kind of the we can fathom. Remind your soul today that nothing is with him. Russell was got in contend for his promises. Until you believe them again. Your faith is so very precious to him. And here's the prayer precious lord. You are a faithful god. Show me the gap that exists between what i do what i truly believe and then fill in those empty spaces with more of you awakened my heart and i will engage my face. Do the impossible in my life in your name. i price in that Yes yes lord that gap. I love how you put that because that really is it. And when the lord pointed out it's you know his correction isn't rejection. He's just saying. I want to heal you there and i. I hope that you've heard that as we've been talking about the different things is that this isn't condemnation like susie pointed out it's to sing god which he'll the gaps in my soul. I just received that for myself today. Suzy i. I'm really tired of living in the gap. I need god's truth to stand in the gap for me..

"We're hearing amazing amazing saw and super grateful for how it turned out. And as you know. Beth negated a hardcover with a gorgeous pages. And while i you know i. It was a labor of love. Once i saw had it in my hands. I just marveled at the goodness got. Yeah well and the beautiful thing is is if you guys are listening to this interview in march you can still get this devotional because it's just numbered by day rather than by date and i really really love how you've given us the two opportunities to read chronologically through the bible or to go by topic you got Dealing with sin faith admitted opposition entries on the peace of god the power of the gospel sharing your faith shining in the darkness. There's just wonderful things that like. You can just page through the contents at content page and find. What do i need from the lord today so this is a so interactive and it's so practical and as always it's so powerful. I love the words that god gives you susie because they just seem to just cut through the fluff. I'm with you girl. I am not a fluffy devotional girl i want. I want meat and you have definitely set a beautiful table. You know you talked about twenty twenty being such a crazy year. And and i love the timing of the lord for this devotion i was just thinking you know for those out there that are listening and that word prevail and the here it in. They want it but they feel perhaps like the doing anything but prevailing. They just feel like they're surviving. How do we move from that posture of surviving to to that place of thriving or it's a great question. I know how i have to do that. As someone who still deals with some chronic health issues is you think about any time. There's a delay of the promise any time the burden feels heavier than the weightiness of god's promise anytime god feels absent because he silent it's the enemy will leverage those moments to step in between as if he can between us in god to say. Did god really say. Do you think he really is. do you. think you really are and The dow those are the times where we walk by faith not by sight. And you know this is a this is a a loose interpretation of regard cokes. I just don't remember it exactly. But he said something to the fact that that jesus not only love does i that first time he loves us. I every single day. The the love of god is what changes us and i have a daily radio talk show and i love brain science and just because i see how connected it is as a person. I worked in the fitness industry for fifteen years and i battled health things my whole adult life. And i love god's words so to see how god his fearfully wonderfully made us together and how important it is to understand the depths of what scripture actually means. I gotta tell you. I had a brain scientists on dr tim jennings and he talked about that. If we were to spend fifteen minutes a day fifteen minutes day do nothing else but pondering how much god loves us..

"My friend twenty twenty was quite a year wasn't it. It's nothing like any of us plan but in today's episode. My friend susie. Larson reminds us that. It wasn't outside of god's plan he knew all about it. He knows everything we faced and he's been at work in everything that we've gone through and i really believe that today. He wants to give us new perspective to help us. E our current reality through his eyes so that we can live our lives according to his truth not by our feelings and definitely not by our fears. God wants to teach us how to prevail. Oh you guys. It is always my pleasure to have susie larson on the podcast. Suzy.
